1918 Year of Victory: The end of the Great War and the shaping of history

https://www.amazon.com/1918-Year-Victory-shaping-history-ebo...
1918 YEAR OF VICTORY is an original and very readable account of one of the most significant and often misunderstood events of the last century. With an historian’s eye for clear headed analysis combined with incredible attention to detail and narrative, the Australian War Memorial’s Ashley Ekins presents a compelling account of the world’s first ‘great war’ and its legacy.The Great War of 1914–1918 casts a long shadow. It is over 90 years since the last shots were fired, ending a global conflict that consumed the lives and hopes of so many of its generation. The catastrophic scale of the war and its immense human cost haunted the survivors and in just over a decade, the victory of 1918 was eroded by the apparent failure of the Versailles peace settlement, the rise of Nazism and the approach of the Second World War. Many believe the Great War set the pattern for the large-scale violence, devastation and genocide witnessed throughout the wars of the 20th century.The recent deaths of the last remaining survivors of the First World War have revived poignant memories and re-established a vigorous debate as to what, in the end, it all meant. Was the war, in effect, a futile 1561 days of incredible carnage paving the way for yet more misery, death and destruction with the Second World War? Or did the end of the war create the modern world, shaping our era’s attitudes, social relations, art and culture?The Australian War Memorial is leading this global reassessment of the First World War. The chapters in this book had their origins in an international conference, 1918 Year of Victory, convened by the AWM in Canberra in November 2008 to mark the ninetieth anniversary of the end of the Great War. Lively, authoritative and wide-ranging presentations were made by the world’s leading scholars, comprehensively revealing new thinking and challenging many of the assumptions and common perceptions surrounding the conflict.At once an informed overview for general-interest readers and a superb resource for serious buffs, this extraordinary volume is sure to become one of the fundamental books in any war buff’s library.Ashley Ekins (volume editor) is Head of the Military History Section at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. He specializes in the history of World War One and the Vietnam War and has written widely on these conflicts and on the role of Australian soldiers in the Great War.2010 Temper Medal Competition shortlist. The judges said: 'They greatly admired the range of thoughtful and stimulating chapters provided by a strong international team of historians, and also the wonderful production values so evident throughout this book. This is exactly how conference proceedings should be disseminated. In another year, it might well have come through at the head of the field.'

DAH Theatre: A Sourcebook

https://www.amazon.com/DAH-Theatre-Sourcebook-Dennis-Barnett...
DAH Theatre: A Sourcebook is a collection of essays about the work of one of the most successful and innovative performance groups in contemporary history. With a direct line of descent from Jerzy Grotowski and Eugenio Barba, DAH Theatre, founded during the worst of times in the former Yugoslavia, amidst a highly patriarchal society, predominantly run by women, has thrived now for twenty-five years. The chapters in this book, for the most part, have been written by both theatre scholars and practitioners, all of whom have either seen, studied with or worked with this groundbreaking troupe. What makes DAH so exceptional? The levels of innovation and passion for them extend far beyond the world of mere performance. They have been politically and socially driven by the tragedies and injustices that they have witnessed within their country and have worked hard to be a force of reconciliation, equity and peace within the world. And those efforts, which began on the dangerous streets of Belgrade in 1991, today, have reached throughout the world. Though they still make their home in Serbia, audiences from as far afield as New Zealand, Mongolia, Brazil and the U.S. have discovered their power – both in purely aesthetic terms and as passionate activists.
